Calhoun County Civic Chorale Seeks New Members as 2014 Fall Season Begins


The Calhoun County Civic Choral will begin its fall season on Monday, August 25, 2014 at 7:15 p.m. in the Performance Center of Mason Hall. The Chorale will begin rehearsing music for the December 7 Winter Concert of J. S. Bach’s Cantata "140 Sleepers Awake” and the Vivaldi "Gloria." The concert will be held at the Church of St. Michael and All Angels in Anniston.

The Chorale is under the direction of Dr. Patricia Corbin, JSU Director of Choral Activities and is accompanied by Vicki Brock. The Calhoun County Civic Chorale is one of five choral ensembles sponsored by the JSU David L. Walters Department of Music. The singers in the Chorale are members of the community and JSU students and faculty. The Chorale meets every Monday night up until the final performance.

This first rehearsal is a new member open house. New singers are welcome to come to this rehearsal and experience the Chorale without further obligation. Chorale members are singers who have voices that can blend well with others, are able to learn their individual vocal part from written music, and enjoy singing classical choral masterworks. New members are always welcome.

Community members and non-enrolled students pay $35 dues along with the cost of music. JSU students interested in participating in the Chorale for college credit should register for “Chorus, MU 196 or MU 396."

The Chorale will not meet on Monday, September 1 due to the Labor Day holiday. Rehearsals will resume Monday, September 8. For further information, please contact the JSU Choral Activities office (256) 782-5544, or email Dr. Corbin,
